Stayed in site 86 right on the ocean. 25 yards from the path behind the motorhome to the beach. We encountered a very friendly staff person. Rate paid reflects three nights off season rate and one night season rate. Rate in season is $78 per night. Yikes. But location is everything. Full hookups including cable. No WiFi. Mostly very well maintained seasonal sites in this CG. For its size found it to be very quiet and sleeping to the sounds of the waves was great. Good stores for food and supplies in the area. Sites are tight but doable with slides and awning with many concrete aprons, sand and some grass. Put a bucket of water outside your door to rinse off sand before going into the RV. No trees contrary to the name of the campground. We camped at Camp Ocean Forest in a Motorhome.

The hosts weren't overly friendly, but the ocean-front spots couldn't be beat!! There are a LOT of permanent folks, but everyone we met there was really nice! We did have to book a minimum of 5 nights for the ocean-front site, even though we could only stay 3, but the park was full, so it was worth it! The bathrooms/showers were clean, but needed a little "spiffing" up...great for washing off the sand before we headed back to the rig for our full-on showers. Would most definitely stay here again. We camped at Camp Ocean Forest in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Eat at Rucker John's...great food! And take in some mini golf...2 courses to choose from...one really close. And the ice cream at the Sweet Spot was marvelous! And the pier is right there if you're a fisherman...or just like to take a look at the ocean...no charge to get on the pier...a nice surprise!

Very friendly host and the sites are literally 25 steps to the beach. That being said the sites are very small and very close together. This means your outside area is your neighbors sewer hose and hookups and slide out. There was enough room for the awning to go out however. But you are at the beach so spend your time there I guess. Also the park really only has 6 sites available for nightly rental the rest of the sites are all permanent residents living in mostly older park models and 1970's mobile homes. We camped at Camp Ocean Forest in a Fifth Wheel.

This is somewhat of a primitive campground. Do not expect to find anything up to date. The manager of this park is one of the rudest person we have ever met. I feel so bad for the rest of the staff that have to work under him. I mean there is a mannerly way to approach people other than the way he conducts himself. When checking in or even passing him in the park, he doesn't even bother to speak or welcome anyone here. He has no polite manner of dealing with anyone or any matter. Even all the permanent residents tolerate him just to keep their sites. He definitely has issues that are far from biblical. He definitely needs to be in another type of business other than dealing with the public. We camped at Camp Ocean Forest in a Travel Trailer.

This campground has mostly permanent sites which are filled with old, sometimes very old campers. The campground is your most basic campground run by two old men. There is no playground or anything else to entertain kids. Most people living in the permanent sites are old. If you are looking for a cheaper place to stay right on the beach, you can't beat this place! Our site was right on the beach. We walked over a dune and were on the beach. The sites were very tight. Not much room once the slides were out! All-in-all the campground was clean. Beach was beautiful and not overcrowded. No lifeguard but there is a beach patrol. Highly recommend this place if you want peaceful ocean-front sites with full hookup for cheap or if you are on a budget. The Holiday Travel Park down the road is $30+ more per night. We camped at Camp Ocean Forest in a Travel Trailer.
